I figured last evening that zombies are just another depiction of me with a hangover, so I've adopted "Think Mirror" as a mantra.

Those gaps are a pain though, this afternoon the guy next door cleared out tons of crap from our border hedge using a blower that I reckon he nicked from the back of an F-15.

So, more bloody birch seeds everywhere. This just following me having hoovered and wet-washed the two rooms in question.

Ho hum.

We took a tip from the locals on how to repel them and it worked, trouble is I can't remember the 'recipe'! I know it involved Dettol liquid mixed with one or two other things.
In my gold prospecting days in Africa when I used to spend most of my days out in the bush, ticks were a huge problem. We used to get covered in them during the course of the day. Another older bloke in the team used to swear by splashing his legs with paraffin to repel them, and sure enough it worked but he was a walking "do not smoke" zone.

DH invited one of his colleagues and his family to stay for a few days, while they were touring the west US. No consultation with me of course. No help at all from DH to get the place ready for the visitors, or cooking. I don't mind visitors as such, but, at least let me have some input as to who and when. If I ask him to do something, it's oooh, my back, oooh, my leg. He does have a slight bit of arthritis, but nothing a well placed Tylenol won't fix for a while. To say I'm feeling bl**dy pi$$ed off would be right.

He's bloody lucky he's not wearing a frying pan for a hat. Visitors are a LOT of work. No wonder you're pissed off!

I was marvelling at this technology & wondering when in the future it might come to NZ when a struck me.

I take it the thing isn't disposable so it gets re-used time and time again?

I've tried that tack, the little sods simply don't listen.

Just this evening, I apologised to a mouse that I almost trod on while it was scurrying back to safety under the wardrobe, carrying a recently obtained leaf from one of OH's plants that look pretty for a week or so then end up dead due to (a) lack of watering (b) over-watering (c) attacks by mice.

I'll stick with zombies...

Can I assume that the request to IB gurus for the 'I didn't really read that post' button is still in the pipeline?

Won't catch mice, won't bite burglars in two - just as well you love them

It might be reusable after a quick wash?

That reminds me of my friend...she swallowed the crown off her front tooth. I’ve often wondered if she told the dentist where she found it...

I would have just said 'I misplaced my crown, it was a bummer'
